GHOUL: The Masked Bastards Launch Fan-Fueled “Ghoulunatics” Lyric Video; Tour Dates With Carcass Loom – Line your floor with plastic, sharpen a rusty hatchet, and strap in for the gorestrewn melee of the new “Ghoulunatics” lyric video by GHOUL.

Said MetalSucks of the track upon its initial unveiling, “From the best Metallica riff that won’t be on the new Metallica album to the bang snap drums to the exotic guitar leads to the lyrical celebration of miscreants, everything about the song rages. Shit feels like being strapped into a flaming car and sent full speed at a brick wall.” [MORE…]

BANGLADEAFY: Technical Bass/Drums NYC Duo To Issue Narcopaloma Through Nefarious Industries In August – Closing a three-year gap since their bewildering The Briefcase EP left jaws swinging, NYC-based BANGLADEAFY returns with their ripping new set of tunes encapsulated on Narcopaloma. The origin of the BANGLADEAFY moniker fuses the Bangladeshi heritage of drummer Atif Haq with the physical hearing impairment of bassist/pianist/vocalist Jon Ehlers – the multi-instrumentalist and his two sisters having been born with sensorineural hearing loss, rendering him virtually deaf his entire life. Yet this thought would never cross your mind, as the duo interlopes endless runs and rhythms with intense time changes and otherworldly texture with utter seamlessness. [MORE…]

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA & BLEACH EVERYTHING: Heavy Metal Suicide Split Due In August Via Magic Bullet Records – Heavy Metal Suicide pairs together THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA and BLEACH EVERYTHING, two intensely physical bands comprised completely of dyed-in-the-wool DIY punk lifers. With its members hailing from Reno, Nevada and San Francisco, California, THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA has been nihilistically terrifying audiences for the greater part of two decades. Their contributions to Heavy Metal Suicide continue to thematically blur the lines between DIY and DUI with song titles on brand new scorchers “Looking To Score” and “Get Fucked Up!” Both tracks capture a point in the band’s ongoing lyrical narrative of life and death where there is hardly any separation between the two and both are acceptable (so long as there is an escape therein). [MORE…]

PARANOID: Satyagraha Album By Swedish Hardcore Punk Band Out Now Via Southern Lord – 偏執症者 (PARANOID)‘s 2015 album Satyagraha is out now on CD and LP format via Southern Lord. Comprised of ten biting and unremitting sonic assaults, Satyagraha offers up a diverse yet essential dose of d-beat. Finding itself on an array of end-of-year lists, and stealing the No.1 spot on Cvlt Nation’s Top Six D-Beat Releases of 2015, this album demanded the band’s full fury and whole souls. Therefore, you are implored to listen at maximum volume to ensure Satyagraha burns into your psychosis. [MORE…]
